I have more experience with in person tutoring than on-line. It is harder to determine if you have the students attention on-line. Using a computer camera would help this situation. Scheduling may be easier on-line since once does not have to travel or select a public location for the lesson. I have used libraries, Panera Bread and Starbucks when I do not go to the students home. Always remember you have to encourage the student. Often they lack confidence. I really have seen a few students grow in confidence over several lessons. Helping students improve their study skills is vital for their future success.
